We followed the recipe but transferred to pressure cooker instead of slow cooker. After 32 minutes we had an amazing and tender meal (see photo). I took extra time to trim away fat and sinew as our lamb was locally raised and won at youth livestock auction to support our community. Our Kalamata olives were briney so we didn't add much salt. We served over couscous with sliced mushrooms and slivered almonds.
